According to Pausanias' Description of Greece, the sanctuary of Despoina at Lykosoura was created before the Trojan War and was already important at the time of the foundation of Megalopolis by synoecism in the first half of the fourth century B.C. However, the absence of any mention of Despoina or Lykosoura in written sources earlier than the third century as well as the archaeological evidence invite us to challenge this alleged antiquity. This paper rather ventures the hypothesis that Despoina was a cult figure created by Megalopolis and that her sanctuary was given a pan-Arcadian flavour by the importation of cults and traditions that already existed in other cities.

Given the limited number of written sources about the disappearance of cults in ancient Greece, as well as the important difficulties raised by their interpretation, the study of this phenomenon is almost exclusively possible through the analysis of the information obtained from archaeological excavations. However, the identification of the abandonment of a sanctuary is often difficult, mainly because of the excavation conditions but also because of post-depositional processes that may cause a destruction of the upper stratigraphic layers. Moreover, the cult of an abandoned sanctuary can be transferred into a new sanctuary, so that the archaeological sources cannot be sufficient to attest the disappearance of a cult. [less ▲]

Throughout their lives, fish accomplish frequent movements between functional habitats that are often triggered by environmental signals. We aimed to determine if rheophilic cyprinids (barbel, Barbus barbus and chub Squalius cephalus), living in different places of the same river basin, may develop similar movement periodicities and react identically to environmental cues to carry out their spawning migration. We used the capture data of three modern fish passes that were monitored continuously during three consecutive years (2010 to 2012) in three rivers of the Meuse basin in Belgium. We captured 418 individuals at adult stage, and the capture number per species was greater (80%) in spring (during the spawning migration period). The spawning migration of the barbel occurred earlier (median = 122nd day of the year) and at lower temperatures (median = 14.5°C) in the lowland rivers compared to the upland river (140th day of the year and 18.4°C). For the barbel, migration initiation differed depending on the river but finished under similar environmental conditions. In contrast, for the chub, no significant difference between rivers was observed regarding spawning migration periodicity and environmental cues. Within the same river basin, rheophilic cyprinids demonstrate flexibility in their responses to environmental variables and may optimise the start date of migration to spawning grounds depending on their local environment and individual experiences. This phenomenon was more pronounced in the barbel, which has more specific ecological requirements. [less ▲]

How can new players seeking to serve nonstandard worker categories (such as project-based workers) establish themselves into labour markets that are highly institutionalized? This paper explores the case of SMart, a Belgian community-based labour market intermediary that successfully developed solutions to better represent the interests of project-based workers and secure their discontinuous careers. Using an organizational legitimacy approach, we find that labour market entry and growth involve different types of boundary-crossing when addressing the needs of workers that do not fit into established categories. However, to justify boundary-crossing, the new player must complement its pragmatic work on delivering new services and tools with conceptual (cognitive) and structural (moral) legitimation work.

My article looks at two recent Asian American texts written in the first-person plural – namely Julie Otsuka’s The Buddha in the Attic (2011) and Chang-rae Lee’s On Such a Full Sea (2014). My main goal is to show that the ambiguities and tensions generated by we narration in these two Asian American novels prove particularly apt when it comes to calling into questions essentialist views concerning the anatomy of community-building. But these two we texts are particularly interesting at a theoretical level, in that they help us challenge the orthodoxies of traditional narrative theory– among which Gérard Genette’s all-too-rigid distinction between the homo- and heterodiegetic levels in a text, or the generalized assumption, which has been notably challenged by Mieke Bal, that every act of story-telling is necessarily indebted to ‘a’ narrator, and a narrator of anthropomorphic standards at that.

Aim: The Psychopathy Checklist-Revised (PCL-R) is the most studied and validated instrument to measure psychopathy. We aimed to explore its items content invariance to forensic schizophrenic subjects. Method: We examined the PCL-R protocol of 15 male forensic schizophrenic subjects and attributed a score of sensitivity to psychotic symptomatology to each item score. Results: Results suggest that the applicability of the PCL-R items to a forensic schizophrenic sample is not to be blindly warranted. Some items more systematically positively influenced by psychotic symptoms (e.g. Shallow Affect, Lack of Remorse or Guilt), while others were negatively influenced (e.g. Promiscuous Sexual Behavior, Glib and Superficial Charm), or not influenced at all (e.g. Criminal Versatility). Conclusions: The current study suggest that the applicability of the PCL-R items to a forensic schizophrenic sample is not to be blindly warranted. We discuss both psychometric and conceptual implications for the measurement of psychopathy when a diagnosis of schizophrenia has been established. [less ▲]

The paper describes the factors influencing the interplay of pension and tax policies from a fiscal and welfare perspective, and identifies areas where both topics can materially impact one another. The paper also explores the arguments for coordination between income tax and pension policies in light of the distributional and behavioral synergies. The paper raises questions regarding tax policy’s effectiveness for materially influencing pension coverage, contribution compliance, and labor mobility. The authors argue for taxing pension similarly to all other incomes and for limiting tax treatment of mandatory pensions, and for initiating coordinated tax and pension reforms before electoral demographics render such reforms even more difficult than today.

Introduction: Given that recent research has shown that functional connectivity is not a static phenomenon, we aim to investigate the dynamic properties of the default mode network’s (DMN) connectivity in patients with disorders of consciousness. Methods: Resting-state fMRI volumes of a convenience sample of 17 patients in unresponsive wakefulness syndrome (UWS) and controls were reduced to a spatiotemporal point process by selecting critical time points in the posterior cingulate cortex (PCC). Spatial clustering was performed on the extracted PCC time frames to obtain 8 different co-activation patterns (CAPs). We investigated spatial connectivity patterns positively and negatively correlated with PCC using both CAPs and standard stationary method. We calculated CAPs occurrences and the total number of frames. Results: Compared to controls, patients showed (i) decreased within-network positive correlations and between-network negative correlations, (ii) emergence of “pathological” within-network negative correlations and between-network positive correlations (better defined with CAPs), and (iii) “pathological” increases in within-network positive correlations and between-network negative correlations (only detectable using CAPs). Patients showed decreased occurrence of DMN-like CAPs (1–2) compared to controls. No between-group differences were observed in the total number of frames Conclusion: CAPs reveal at a more fine-grained level the multifaceted spatial connectivity reconfiguration following the DMN disruption in UWS patients, which is more complex than previously thought and suggests alternative anatomical substrates for consciousness. BOLD fluctuations do not seem to differ between patients and controls, suggesting that BOLD response represents an intrinsic feature of the signal, and therefore that spatial configuration is more important for consciousness than BOLD activation itself.

The unsteady Vortex Lattice method is becoming an increasingly popular aerodynamic modelling method for incompressible aeroelastic problems, such as flexible low-speed aircraft, wind turbines and flapping flight. It leads to discrete time aeroelastic state space equations, which must be solved in a time-marching framework. Eigenvalue or singular value decompositions of the discrete time equations can be used in order to perform stability analysis but such procedures must be accompanied by model order reduction because the size of the equations is large. This work proposes a modal frequency domain implementation of the Vortex Lattice method, resulting in a modal generalised force matrix. Model order reduction is implicit in the modal approach and stability analysis can be carried out using industry-standard flutter analysis techniques, such as the p-k method. The approach is validated by comparison to wind tunnel flutter data obtained from rectangular cantilever flat plate wings of different aspect ratios and sweep angles. It is found that the aeroelastic model predictions follow the experimental trends for both flutter speed and frequency but tend to be moderately conservative. [less ▲]

Recent studies have demonstrated that both ordinal number processing and serial order working memory (WM) abilities predict calculation achievement. This raises the question of shared ordinal processes operating in both numerical and WM domains. We explored this question by assessing the interrelations between numerical ordinal, serial order WM, and arithmetic abilities in 102 7- to 9-year-old children. We replicated previous studies showing that ordinal numerical judgement and serial order WM predict arithmetic abilities. Furthermore, we showed that ordinal numerical judgement abilities predict arithmetic abilities after controlling for serial order WM abilities while the relationship between serial order WM and arithmetic abilities was mediated by numerical ordinal judgement performance. We discuss these results in the light of recent theoretical frameworks considering that numerical ordinal codes support the coding of order information in verbal WM. [less ▲]

Over the years, polymer analyses using ion mobility-mass spectrometry (IM-MS) measurements have been performed on different ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) setups. In order to be able to compare literature data taken on different IM(-MS) instruments, ion heating and ion temperature evaluations have already been explored. Nevertheless, extrapolations to other analytes are difficult and thus straightforward same-sample instrument comparisons seem to be the only reliable way to make sure that the different IM(-MS) setups do not greatly change the gas phase behavior. We used a large range of degrees of polymerization (DP) of poly(ethylene oxide) PEO homopolymers to measure IMS drift times on three different IM-MS setups: a homemade drift tube (DT), a trapped (TIMS) and a travelling wave (T-Wave) IMS setup. The drift time evolutions were followed for increasing polymer DPs (masses) and charge states and they are found to be comparable and reproducible on the three instruments. [less ▲]

La notion de posture peut-elle devenir un outil conceptuel pour la didactique des langues ? Et si l’on défend cette hypothèse, quelle serait sa fonction heuristique ? Notre réflexion se veut d’abord épistémologique, autour d’une notion que l’on peut qualifier de « carrefour » ou « nomade » de par son caractère transdisciplinaire. Nous reviendrons d’abord sur les travaux en sociologie de la littérature, en analyse du discours et en didactique des langues (du français en particulier) qui ont sollicité la notion. Dans un second temps, nous définirons ce que nous entendons par « posture » et ses éléments constitutifs, partant de l’exemple du discours métalinguistique ordinaire et du rapport à la langue. À partir de l’analyse d’une entrevue menée avec une étudiante à propos de son expérience d’études en Belgique francophone et de ses représentations sur la langue française, nous montrerons : sur quels indices (linguistiques et énonciatifs notamment) le chercheur peut s’appuyer pour analyser les postures ; ce qu’elles nous disent du rapport à la langue des sujets parlants ; et comment l’étude des postures peut servir la didactique des langues, en particulier du français langue étrangère.
